Exploring The A-Spot
Let’s face it, sex education at school teaches you the bare minimum and is mostly just the speaker trying to convince you that you’re way too young to be having sex. The aim is simply to educate on only what you need to know and discourage you from participating in premarital sex.
There is so much that high school sex education does not teach you, and many people are left with unanswered questions. Years later, there are still new terms popping up that you have never heard of but are keen to find out about.
If you are one of the people who constantly want to know more about sex education, here is a term you need to know.
What Is The A-Spot

You might know that having sex is not a one-size-fits-all fiasco. There are many different ways people derive pleasure from the experience, and it is up to you and your partner to find the best ways to enjoy the experience together.
One of the most popular terms thrown around when talking about sex is the G-spot and how you can find it to increase your partner’s sexual pleasure. However, this is not the only erogenous zone that can result in intense pleasure.

The A-spot is found on women as a protrusion of the cervix into the vagina. It is also known as the female degenerated prostate because of its location in the vagina. It can be stimulated similarly to the male prostate, also known as the male G-spot.
How Is It Different To The G-Spot

You have undoubtedly read about the G-spot and know that many people go on a quest to find theirs when they are in sexual relationships to increase their pleasure. Both males and females have G-spots at different locations in their bodies that can be stimulated differently.
However, the A-spot is an exclusively female spot on the body. The G-spot is also used to achieve full body orgasm, whereas the A-spot is used more for foreplay and to increase lubrication before the act of sexual penetration.
How Do I Find It

Your A-spot is located between your cervix and your bladder, which means that you can find it by inserting the fingers or a toy into the body and then aiming it up and out toward the front of the body.
The A-spot is also at least five inches into the body, so keep that in mind when trying to locate it. However, depth can differ from person to person as each of our bodies is different. It is important to truly connect with your body to achieve orgasm from this spot, so breathe deeply and relax into it.
The Bottom Line

The A-spot might take a while to find, and it might take even longer to achieve orgasm from this kind of stimulation because it is not like an orgasm that you might be used to, and you might be overthinking whether or not you have found the right spot.
However, take the time to learn your own body and find what works for you so that you can let your partner know what works for you as well. Most importantly - have fun figuring it all out; that’s the point after all.
